Whilst we are waiting for my pics to be resized, a word about d**t.
Quentin Crisp said after a few years it doesn't get any deeper and falls off the edge......and my opinion (for what it's worth), is if you don't move anything,  it doesn't show......it isn't the d**t that shows, it's the clean shiny areas when glass pieces are moved!!
So, don't move them!! :no:

I would find that terribly depressing -- I like to touch my glass and move it and rearrange it.   :'(

What really depresses me Anik, is the boxes of glass animals that are packed away because I haven't got room to display them.....all my Selkirk ducks, Langham squirrels and little glass birds.....sometimes I spend a whole day just unwrapping them and saying hello to them, sad, aren't I??? :cry:

 :thud: some amazing collections there - my collection looks positively restrained by comparison.
I like lots of space around my glass and dont like it on window sills so I restrict it to most available surfaces  :24: except those.

Thank you Cathy......I am learning, and I did rotate them in Picasa and crop the pictures off the bottom, but when I loaded them,  they just ignored all my insrtuctions and they ended up on their sides!!

These are the ones waiting for a cabinet to be made with lights.... And a small display that is probably my most uncluttered!!
